poach at ocean beach. >> good morning, i'm captain houston with the california national guard. i'm with first marine briged. i've been coming to san francisco since may for the planning efforts and i got to participate in the com drill with 6 marines and we were dispersed from all 3 different sites. >> good morning, everybody, my name is michelle geddis, i'm with the san francisco department of emergency management, i'm responsible for the project management ofrs and one of our major programs is the interoperatability program. so i was more than delighted to be part of this com exercise, i was able to be an evaluator at the ocean beach location and we have a lot of lessons learned to talk about. thanks. >> one of the challenges that we have in civilian and also you as military is that common operating picture. how do we make sure that all of our resources in the field, back in the command post, have the same operating picture and we can ensure that we have an unity of effort of everyone. and with the command and control exercise that we started with, this was one great opportu
? and this is for our military participants. captain houston? >> my recommendation, dod element coming into a city incident, is, one, bring a list of your communications capabilities, your frequencies and documented in its capabilities, not necessarily the acronym of your branch. we came in with our hf radios and lucas took that information, he understood it and put it on to his ics form. so that's the no. 1 priority that i would say to bring in initially. 2, i would say understand the primary situational awareness. in the military we call it a pay plan or primary alternate. what i would say is understand what your operators want to see as their primary form of communication and command and control. 3, i would say communicate in the clear. and with that what i mean is identify your equipment by capabilities, and also the radios need to be unencrypted single channel and plain text, which is something we don't operate a lot on in the battlefield, but this isn't the battlefield, this is home. so that's a new communication change as we move forward in supporting our civil authorities. >> okay, i un
are hopeful we will win 50. if we are the runner up we would be put against houston for 51. that is how it will work. we look forward to the challenge. >> one other question, may be premature. with the out-of-towners, have you thought about how, if everything is based in san francisco, how the people will get down to santa clara? how that will work? >> we have talked about it and look forward to using the great public transportation. caltrans, great buss that are every morning picking up san franciscans, taking them down to silicon valley. we feel confident and confident we can make that happen in working with sf travel and the other visitor's bureaus down in the peninsula and south bay. we feel confident we can make that happen. >> i would say you see all the seismic retrofitting with the bay bridges, that is another reason why. >> everyone is from san francisco. the tag line was like go sf super bowl. the game will be in santa clara. what exactly is san francisco's involvement. are there events held here? >> yes, a great question. the super bowl 50 will be an iconic game. we expect a
action. no. 2, captain houston mentioned it already, it's think open architecture. i noticed that departures for the military, our communication is encrypted, when you are doing humanitarian assistance or even here on national soil, you need to be able to communicate. so that was a take away, probably unencrypted plain text communication. think open architecture. the last one that i have is definitely familiarize yourself with disca, it's coming to the forefront, communications quite specifically. that means knowing what civilian authorities utilize in terms of frequencies and wave forms and that's not something that we do every day as communicators. so it provides an opportunity for a more well-round ed case and i certainly got into that territory this year. thank you. >> there's definitely 3 things i'm going to hit hard with my relief. first is understand that c2 piece because it is complicated. we don't understand under that structure normally. it's very important that my relief understands or any disca planner understands that c2 piece. second is understand the ic
